For the few members of Orion that are not already members
of ANE, Jim Thorn shows that discussion of Essenes and 
Qumran topics can be pursued on ANE when Orion no longer
supports moderated discussions.

ELECTRONIC LIST FOR THE DISCUSSION OF THE ANCIENT NEAR EAST 
ANE is an unmoderated electronic mailing list on the Internet focusing on
topics and issues of interest in ancient Near Eastern studies, from the
Indus to the Nile, and from the beginnings of human habitation to the
rise of Islam. The ANE list is open to anyone, and new members are warmly
welcomed. The discussions will assume a knowledgeable background in the
cultures of the ancient Near East.

List communications are by electronic mail messages sent to each
subscriber. Two forms of the ANE list are available: in either the
standard format (ANE) or in digest form (ANE-DIGEST), which combines a
series of separate contributions to ANE into a single electronic mail
message to the user.

The ANE and ANE-DIGEST lists currently have more than 750 subscribers
world-wide, with an daily average of 10 mailings to each subscriber and a
peak output of 30-40 messages. A wide range of topics are discussed on
the ANE list: new discoveries and publications in the field, public
debate on controversial issues of policy and scholarship, job placement
information, and other musings by subscribers.

For those of you not familiar with the use of electronic mailing lists,
the 
following description may be of interest.  The Oriental Institute uses a 
program called Majordomo to administer our mailing lists.  Our list
server 
has two addresses:

will be automatically redistributed to all subscribers to the list.  In
order to 
help other list subscribers, you should give an indication of the
contents of 
your message in the subject line of your email message.  Feel free to
